    Tony,
    
    Congratulations! May I know your location? I have been trying to observe
    SS3 since 10/2 with no luck. Maybe it's the cloud cover or the moon.
    BTW, I'm at 10:22N 123:58E. I'm also using Heavens-Above. I'll keep
    trying, wish me luck.
    
    regards,
    
    Sigurd 10/5

    One flash observed from starshine 3, in a N-S pass low in
    west at 10:40UT October 4. Magnitude +1.5  + or - 0.5, strobe like,
    as expected. No other
    flashes seen looking further along track for more than 40 seconds.
    Using 7x50 binoculars because of bright moonlight and looking
    over 10Km of suburban lights. Used Heavens-above predictions.
